THERAMBOS or THRAMBUS (Θεράμβως, Hdt. 7.123; Θράμβος, Steph. B. sub voce Θραμβηΐς, Scylax, p. 26; Θραμβουσία δειράς, Lycophr. 1404), a town of the peninsula Pallene, in Chalcidice in Macedonia, is called a promontory by Stephanus B., and is hence supposed by Leake (Northern Greece, vol. iii. p. 156) to have occupied a position very near the promontory Canastraeum, the most southerly point of Pallene; but from the order of the names in Scylax we would rather place it at the promontory upon the western side of the peninsula, called Posidium by Thucydides (4.129).
